SHRI VENKATESHWARA UNIVERSITY INDIA Shri Venkateshwara University in Gajraula is a UGC-recognized university with a strength of more than 10,000 students. TDV is a technical collaborator for design courses at SVU and therefore the university confers accreditation and coordinates all academic activities at TDV.
TDV is a great place to study because it has stemmed out of a philosophy that resounds in its curriculum, campus and communication.
The Design Village is a very exciting and promising design college. It’s a college founded by designers and that is what makes all the difference. With its interdisciplinary approach, students are much more than just designers but also critical thinkers. I’m looking forward to working with TDV students on future projects and happy to invite them for internships at my studio which is all about sustainable fashion and mindful consumption.
Choosing TDV was kind of strange for me. The best part was when I got to know about the highlight of this college, the 'International Semester'.
The environment of our TDV campus is very relaxed, there are no classroom boundations over here. We have ample amount of time to explore every assignment. We are also given time to look upon the flaws of our presentations and assignments.
Every corner of TDV speaks design. Ideas just run into my mind whenever I'm sitting at the stepwell. The media lab and the library are my go-to places.
Hi, this is Anoop and I’m a 2nd year student at TDV. I come from a place where most people don’t even know what design is. I myself, wasn’t sure about pursuing design education. Nevertheless, I came here and met so many different people, belonging from the south and the north. The faculty here made sure that you don’t feel any kind of discrimination in and around the campus, they made the study areas so comfortable for all of us.
Under the course which I’m pursuing, B.des, we get to choose each module according to our choice. This option, of choosing is only at TDV which comes off as a great help.
This is Sachin, final year Fashion & Textile Design student. For me, fashion is all about building stories behind what you’re wearing.
Initially, I was not sure about what design is. After starting my journey at TDV, I learned that design is so much more than decoration and creating beautiful products. It’s about how you respond to a situation, how you contribute to the environment, it’s more of a responsibility.
Ethnography & research in design are the courses which I liked the most. The concept of ‘villaging’ was very interesting for me as we got to visit new places and interact with different people as well. When I went for my ‘villaging’ trip, there were no mobile phones allowed during the whole time. Even though, we couldn’t understand the point of doing so during the beginning of the trip, we later found it quite helpful as we were spending more of our time engaging with the people present there and seeing things with a different perspective.
Hello, this is Aakash Lamba. I come from Jaipur and I’m a student of The Design Village pursuing Masters in Design.
During our international semester, we had to implement what we learnt at TDV. The French semester was all about two things; serious studies and fun. L’ecole in itself was a new adventure for all of us. Just by the spark of the building, we realized that the design inside is going to be simply amazing. We went there for brand design and the digital media design. However, we got small cues from different disciplines as well. It was a mixed bag of learning from small areas.
The subjects that we had there were divided in a very structured manner. The trans-culture experience was amazing. There were people from China, Japan, Germany and even Bangladesh present there.
The curriculum is extraordinary within the realm of design education. It rises above the classic approach by aiming to educate not only skilled but also responsible designers that are able to tackle today’s complicated challenges for both industry and society.
The people here at TDV acknowledge that each and every design not only has an immediate impact on what people like and what people can do but also how we shape the society. People have different tastes and different considerations. Therefore, there is no accounting for taste, it’s a subjective matter.
